Polo is a team-sport seated on horseback. It is one of the oldest recognized team sports in the world. Polo has been referred to as “the sport of kings" and has become a global sport for riders and culture. India has productive historical relations with many of the western sports, including Horse Polo. India is one of the few countries in the world where the Horse Polo game is still being maintained and practised. India is where modern polo was founded. Polo’s first official game was played in Manipur state, India. Yet the game design and its variations date back to the 6th century BC until around the 1st century AD. Some of the Notable Indian Polo Players are Rathore, Maj Ravi, Rathore, Mr. Lokendra Singh and Sandhu, Lt Col Navjit Singh.
Horse Polo travel is now famous around the world, with the International Polo Federation comprising well over 100-member nations. In 1833 the first polo club was founded in Assam, India, in the town of Silchar. The game’s roots in Manipur are traced to early precursors sagolkangjei. Traditionally, polo is played at Manipur with seven players to one side.
Imphal Polo Ground in the State of Manipur is the oldest polo ground in the world. Manipur has polo not only among people but also Marjing, who is called the god of polo and who also has a pony as his carrier. Besides, the state’s Lai-Haraoba festival portrays the life and times of Khori-phaba, the god of sports playing polo. Therefore, these details show that from the antiquity the game has roots in the region, and Manipuri’s royal families played a vital role in popularizing the game.
